After months after the Musk takeover, a few people asked us if we will eventually stop using Twitter and move everything to Mastodon and others.
So here’s our official answer: Not yet. But we’ll keep our Twitter archives fresh in the long term.
At one point, Twitter is still good for customer service outreach for questions and reporting issues. We can write and talk informally to them without having to writing formal emails or fakingly acting on behalf of the Press to squeeze some answers from them.
But of course, this is soon to change. Let’s say if Twitter decided to mute all notifications, for “verified” users, coming from any unverified users. Does that mean that those who watches over either the Twitter app/website or other CRM software like Hootsuite won’t be alerted over complaint Tweets from unverified users?
Or when Twitter decided to threaten “unverified” people’s usernames to be automatically and forcibly changed to something like user8D92GE2 (instead of Discord’s reinhart1010#3583). In this case, we’re ready to completely leave from the platform. Remember that in our previous post, we’ve warned if Musk soon decided to increase the price, so those who can afford $8/mo today will fall into the same unverified landfill if they can’t no longer afford the inflated price tag.
At the meantime, we are still currently finding out new ways to (informally) reach out brands and companies. Maybe soon other closed-source platforms like TikTok would have one, or when another closed-source platform, specifically designed for that, suddenly gaining traction for this.
This will definitely take some time, so please be patient.
